The Intake Equation

Thursday, February 7, 2019 | 2:45 - 5:45 p.m. | $20

Who Should Attend? Undergraduate members of culturally-based and/or NPHC fraternities/sororities. 
The Intake Equation tackles core challenges that can compromise what their organizations stand for, including hazing, intake, values alignment and various issues that truly matter to specific organizations. Leaders from cultural Greek-letter organizations that hold intake will come together to discuss the core challenges affecting your community. By dissecting the membership intake process and examining the concept of branding, students will learn how to shape their membership in a manner consistent with the mission and values of their organization and will develop a plan to build a legacy of success. This interactive workshop challenges student leaders into action and gives them the confidence and urgency necessary to make significant changes within their organizations and community. The Intake Equation was created and is facilitated by members of NPHC, NAPA, NALFO, and NMGC organizations.

Professionals Institute: Research-Driven Answers to Five Fundamental Questions About the Fraternity/Sorority Experience  
Friday, February 8 | 2:30 - 5:30 p.m. 

Who Should Attend? All fraternity/sorority professionals & graduate students.

What impact does deferred recruitment have on the student experience? Does getting rid of pledging make a difference in an organization's hazing culture? What is the ideal chapter size? What are the biggest predictors of member retention? Is GPA a reliable predictor of chapter culture?

In an era of high-profile hazing deaths, rampant sexual misconduct allegations, and campus fraternity/sorority system shutdowns, college and university leaders are looking for answers. Often, they are forced to fall back on practices that seem promising (i.e. deferred recruitment, shortened new member periods, etc.), but there is actually no empirical evidence to suggest whether or not those practices make a difference. As both campus leaders and fraternal organizations grapple with a "new normal," we still lack empirical evidence related to fundamental questions about the fraternal experience. By having answers to the above questions, our profession can move beyond hyperbole about "best practices" and begin moving toward practices that are supported by empirical data based on four years of research, with nearly 200,000 students representing nearly 400 campuses nationwide completing our surveys.

SWITCH: A Change Management Workshop
Saturday, February 9 | 2:15 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. | $25

Who should attend? Students and professionals interested in change management.

Why is change so hard? The primary obstacle is a conflict that’s built into our brains, say Chip and Dan Heath, authors of the critically acclaimed bestseller SWITCH. Research shows that our minds are ruled by two different systems — the rational mind and the emotional mind — that compete for control. The rational mind wants a great beach body; the emotional mind wants that Oreo cookie. The rational mind wants to change something in the chapter; the emotional mind loves the comfort of the “we’ve always done it this way”. This tension can doom a change effort — but if it is overcome, change can come quickly. Join us at #AFLVCentral for SWITCH!
